African Animal Tales: Sleepy Cheetah

African Animal Tales: Sleepy Cheetah

This is the story of how Cheetah got her distinctive spots, and discovered that she could run as fast as the wind.

Long ago, Cheetah was sandy-coloured and lay snoozing all day on the Great African Plain. There was no need to run to hunt because animals simply tripped over her. But one day there is a fire on the plain, and all the other animals are fleeing. Will Cheetah discover her speed in time?

An African tale with a traditional feel, celebrating the speed and grace of the Cheetah.

The first book in the series – Greedy Zebra – was published in 1984 and the series has stayed in print ever since.
